Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2008 is a good year for all of us.
Phew, I am so glad to be back in my own house. I mean, it has been interesting visiting Cornish Auntie and Devon Grandma, but I have had FOUR long car journeys! On Friday my humans lured me out from under Cornish Auntie's bed with cheese and greenies and threw me in the Evil Cat Carrier and drove me back to Devon Grandma's house, where we stayed for two nights. I got lots more fuss from Devon Grandma and Uncle Sim and Auntie Jan. Then on Sunday my humans put everything back in the car AGAIN and said it was time to go home, but I wasn't sure if I believed them that we were really going home this time, or just to yet another place, so I hid behind Devon Grandma's sofa where I like to sleep because there is a radiator there and it is very cosy. The humans tried to lure me out with food again but it didn't work because I had already caught sight of the Evil Cat Carrier lying in wait with its door open. Eventually they ganged up on me and moved the sofa and managed to catch me as I fled into the next room. I wasn't at all happy about another journey so I meowed most of the way back to London (it takes about four hours from Devon Grandma's house back to London) although I fell asleep going round the M25. If anyone saw a little blue car with Scratchy Mouse lying on the parcel shelf looking out of the rear window, that was us! Finally we were home and I was SO happy to be in my own house at last. But then I was unhappy because I was hungry and it took my humans ages to unload the car and my food bowls were almost the last thing to be unloaded so I waited in the kitchen going "Feed me, feed me, don't you know I have been through a terrible ordeal?"

But I am home now. And my food bowls are home. And my litter box is home. And my Scratchy Mouse is home. And all is well. (My mum says my luggage takes up a lot of space in the car, but you should see all the presents and stuff they brought back with them!)

When we got home there was a lot of post waiting for us including some more Christmas cards for me from Derby and from Missy and KC and from The Meezers and from The Tower Hill Mob. I felt very lucky.

This morning when we were all still in bed snoozing after our journey, the postman rang the front door bell at early o'clock and he had three more parcels! And two of them were for me! One was a parcel from Monty which he had been worried was lost, and the other one was my Secret Paws presents which were from Kashim and Othello! You would not BELIEVE how many toys and treats were inside those two parcels! Thank you so much, Monty, Kashim and Othello.

I have lots of photos of me on my travels to share, and some photos of me opening my presents, but will post those later. I have LOTS to tell! We just saw in the New Year here in London; my humans had champagne and I had Feline Greenies. Now I need to nap. As you can see, Scratchy Mouse and I are furry happy to be home.

Have a Happy New Year! Love Henry, Clyde and Charlotte Helton!
Happy New Year!!!

Happy Happy New Year~!
I wish you have the best 2008~!
Pwesents! It's good to be home isn't it?
That was some car trip! You're very brave to go all that way so that all of your family get to hang out and spend time with you! We don't think we could handle a four hour drive, so we're very impressed with your stamina! How dare your humans not rush to feed you as soon as you got home - where are their priorities?

Thanks so much for visiting us and inviting us to join The Gorgeous Gingers - we're very honoured and Mum just love ALL orange kitties,

Hoping to hear some of your travel stories soon... happy new year from me and all the Good Cats!
It sounds like you had a fine time visiting your family, but it's always good to get home.

You're looking particularly floofy, Eric. Have your found a new brand of volumizing mousse?
Thank you for your good wishes yesterday. I am doing much better. Dragonheart
